Author has written 6 stories for Final Fantasy VII, and Legend of Dragoon.

To the Readers;

For those of you who haven't already guessed from the extreme lack of updates, Black Legacies is on a semi-perminant hiatus until further notice. In addition to a new job that's escalating to feed me 45+ hours a week, impending loom of the start of design courses, and life in general, I've lost a lot of the will and mindset to work on the story of late. And so, I'm having to set it to the back burner. I could go on about the bulk of reasons behind this, but what it boils down to is this: for all that I'd like to do with this story, I feel like I'm losing a fight with a bull elephant. There's too many mistakes, gaps, and othernonsuch to patch up, as well as the remainder of the story of itself, but I feel like I'm not enjoying it any more.

I'm really, truly sorry. Please do not poke me, because there's not much beyond this to say. Again, thanks for all of the support.

...bah, I sound emo.

'... there have been three great cases of jealousy since David of Galilee first discovered the emotion when he could no longer stand the fact that his neighbour Saul's cactus outshone his own. (Originally, jealousy pertained solely to plants, other people's cactus or ginkgoes, or, later, when there was grass, grass, which is why, even to this day, we say that someone is green with jealousy.) Buttercup's case rated a close forth on the all-time list.'
